Who said the following:
“There is still a hope for peace if we finally decide that no longer can we safely blind our eyes and close our ears to those facts which are shaping up more and more clearly . . . and that is that we are now engaged in a show-down fight . . . not the usual war between nations for land areas or other material gains, but a war between two diametrically opposed ideologies.”
“The reason why we find ourselves in a position of impotency is not because our only powerful potential enemy has sent men to invade our shores . . . but rather because of the traitorous actions of those who have been treated so well by this Nation. It has not been the less fortunate, or members of minority groups who have been traitorous to this Nation, but rather those who have had all the benefits that the wealthiest Nation on earth has had to offer . . . the finest homes, the finest college education and the finest jobs in government we can give. This is glaringly true in the State Department. There the bright young men who are born with silver spoons in their mouths are the ones who have been most traitorous.”
Those words were stated by Senator Joseph McCarthy on February 9, 1950, in his famous “Enemies From Within” speech in Wheeling, WV. On that day, he first held up a list of names of employees in the State Department whom he said were “major security risks.”
Although Joseph McCarthy was one of the most demonized American politicians of the last century, much of that was because it was the losers who wrote the history which condemns him. In 2000, and as was reported in the article link provided below (Most Hated Senator Was Right) a trove of information was released, not the least of which was half-century-old FBI recordings of Soviet embassy conversations, showing that McCarthy was right in nearly all his accusations.
The primary targets of his suspicions were government employees, those in the entertainment industry, educators and union activists. Almost every case he charged was proven correct. Whether it was stealing atomic secrets or influencing U.S. foreign policy, communist victories in the 1940s were fed by an incredibly vast spy and influence network.
McCarthy hadn’t realized he’d be fighting against much of the Washington establishment. President Truman was fearful that exposures would reflect on key Democrat officials, he said, and big media and the academic world were very leftist, a heritage of the Depression and World War II. High government officials also feared investigations of their past appointments and associations with people who turned out to be communists or sympathizers.
We have a president today who, from the day he was born, was nurtured in an environment SURROUNDED by Marxists, communists, terrorists, militant black theologists, anti-Semites, anti-Christians, anti-white and anti-Americans. And these are the people who surround him today, who comprise his shadow government, unscreened and unvetted by Congress and the American people, yet wielding power and influence by ideological decree with barely a whimper from those who see the incessant violations of our Constitution. Not one call for impeachment, when there were multiple legitimate causes to do so. How could the people on whom we rely to protect our national security and sovereignty, give security clearance to someone whose background should prevent a pass to attend an Easter egg hunt on the White House lawn let alone clearance to run for president, sit in the Oval Office and command our troops?
Not only do we find ourselves reaping what generations of anti-American infestation has sown from within, but we also have to seriously deal with those who, until the 9/11 terrorist attack, we didn’t really know the depth and breadth of their rapid—and rabid—propagation on our soil and infiltration into our government, hopeful influence over our way of life and non-assimilation to our culture.
Recently, accusations by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann that an Islamist group has infiltrated the U.S. government drew fierce criticism from fellow lawmakers and religious groups. She and a few other patriot GOP legislators sent letters to five government agencies citing “serious security concerns” about what they see as a “deep penetration in the halls of our United States government” by the Muslim Brotherhood. Other than those who demonized Bachmann and her colleagues, is there any American who doubts that in the end Bachmann, et al, will be proven to have been right? Will someone, in 50 years from now, write an article titled, “Most Hated Congresswoman Was Correct?”
First we need a Romney/Ryan election.
Second, we need to identify the enemies.
Then, we need a cup of Joe soon after that—VERY soon after that.
